Alabama DT Quinnen Williams will visit the Giants and Jets this week, per SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano.
Williams is regarded as one of the top defensive players in the draft, with some scouts going as far as labeling him the best defensive player in the draft.
Both the Jets and Giants are expected to target defensive players in the draft and while Williams is not necessarily a pass rusher, he is still talented enough to make an immediate impact on any team’s defensive front.
The Jets hold the No. 3 pick in the draft and there is a strong chance Williams could be there for them to take if they decide to hold onto the pick. The addition of Williams would create a formidable duo on their defensive line with Leonard Williams.
Should the Jets trade down and make a deal with a quarterback-needy team, there is an outside chance Williams could fall to the Giants with the No. 6 pick.
Williams would fill the void in the Giants’ defensive line left by Damon Harrison, whom they traded mid-season to the Detroit Lions.
